Moto g6 plus concept

Motorola has unveiled Moto G5S Plus and G5S in August and already the buzz about the next Moto G smartphone has begun. The Moto G6 Plus will be the successor of G5S Plus and some latest rumours suggest that Motorola may go for an early launch of the next generation of Moto G.

Moto G6 Plus : Release Date and and Price

Previously Motorola used to add a new member to the Moto G series every 10 months. The series began with the original Moto G which was launched in November 2013. After Lenovo has aquired Motorola, things have changed the frequency of new phones increase. In 2017, Motorola unveiled four smartphones under Moto G brand. In February, Moto G5 Plus and G5 has arrived, then G5S Plus and G5 have landed in August.

So it appears that the next Moto G iteration will arrive in early 2018. Most likely, we will see the launch of Moto G6 Plus at MWC 2018 which starts from February 26 to 1st March.

Currently, the price of Moto G5S Plus starts in USA from $280. We are sure that the next Moto G device will be priced higher than G5S Plus. So the most probable price range of G6 Plus will be $300-350.

Moto G6 Plus : Design

Moto g6 plus design

Motorola has introduced Dual Camera design with G5S Plus smart phone. The side bezel size also reduced, so that screen to body ratio has increased. In the next Moto G device, the Lenovo owned company might make necessary changes to reduce side bezels and the thickness.

So most probably, Moto G6 Plus will become the slim device in the Moto G lineup. Due to the reduction bezels the screen size can be increased while keeping the body size same as G5S Plus.

Moto G6 Plus : Display

Moto g6 plus concept

As the average screen size of smart phones keeps on increasing, we can expect that the next Moto G device will arrive with a bigger screen than its predecessor. Moto G5 Plus and G5S Plus devices sported 5.2 inch and 5.5 inch IPS-LCD screens respectively.

The successor of G5S Plus might come with a screen size of 5.7 or 5.8 inch, to knock off the competition. Motorola may employ FullHD resolution with multiple color modes in G6 Plus. So users can enjoy Crystal clear display due to rich pixel density and change color mode, according to needs.

Moto G6 Plus : Performance

Moto G5 Plus and G5S Plus devices are powered by Snapdragon 625 chipset which was very good chipset for mid-rangers. The successor of SD 625 is Snapdragon 630 which is an Octa core chipset clocked at 2.2 Ghz. Due to the significant improvements made in SD630 Mobile Platform, the chipset works much better performance than its predecessor.

Snapdragon 630 moto g6 plus

So, Snapdragon 630 will provide ample processing power for the next Moto G smart phone. Because of the Adreno 508 GPU which is much powerful than the GPU in SD625, Moto G6 Plus will be able to run many Graphics intensive games without any lag or frame drop.

Moto G6 Plus : Camera

Motorola brought Moto G5S Plus with impressive Dual Camera setup on the rear side along with Dual LED flash. But, unfortunately, many users told that the quality of pictures shot by the Dual 13MP sensor camera is not as good as expected. Due to the second 13MP Camera lens, users are able to change the depth of focus and create Bokeh effect, but the quality has to be better. So Motorola should improve the quality of Camera in the upcoming Moto G smartphone.

Moto G6 Plus may also sport 13MP or 12MP Dual Camera sensors with Dual LED flash on the rear, according to latest reports. But the aperture size and pixel size should be improved to reduce noice and quality of pictures. If Motorola do other Camera software refinements, then Moto G6 Plus will definetely stand as a good Camera phone. The G6 Plus may also come with 2K video recording at 30fps support.

Battery and Quick Charge support

Motorola launched Moto G5S Plus mid-ranger with Non-Removable 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery which gives excellent backup. As the Moto G6 Plus might come with a bigger display than its predecessor, the smart phone needs a huge battery to keep power on for a long time. Perhaps, the next mid-ranger from Moto will be powered by 3300 mAh Non-removable Li-Ion battery.

Both Moto G5S Plus and G5 Plus supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Albeit Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset supports Quick Charge 4, Motorola has supplied Moto X4 with only QC 3.0 compatible charger. Despite that, Moto X4 users are able to charge 0% to 100% in just 90 minutes. According to some experts, Motorola may enable Quick Charge 4 tech in Moto G6 Plus and also supply with QC4.0 compatible charger.

So Moto G6 Plus will charge much faster than G5S Plus, inspite of bigger battery, due to QC 4.0. Thanks to the optimizations made in Quick Charge 4.0, the G6 Plus battery will remain cool while Quick Charging, so the battery life will be improved. More confirmed details about the Battery life and charge time of G6 Plus will be revealed in coming days.

Android Oreo

Moto G6 Plus and G6 mid-rangers could come with pre-installed Android Oreo operating system. Android Oreo contains many optimizations to improve performance and battery backup. So Moto G6 Plus will perform better than its predecessor.

Android Oreo contains notable features like Picture in Picture mode, Notification Dots, Notification Channels, App background limits, revamped user interface and many more.

We will update this post soon with more details about Moto G6 Plus in coming days.

Android Oreo for LG G5 and V20 Release Date and Features

Lg v20 android o

Unlocked LG G5 devices received the Nougat update in the US in May. Earlier many carriers rolled out the Android 7.0 update for their LG G5 devices. LG V20 came with inbuilt Android Nougat but yet to receive the Android 7.1 update. The next big update for the G5 and V20 flagships is Android Oreo.

Update on 28/11/2017 :

In late October, LG started the application process for Android Oreo Beta for LG V30 in South Korea. For the registered users, the South Korean tech giant started the rollout of Android 8.0 Beta a few hours ago. Both LG V30 and V30+ users (beta registered) in South Korea are being treated with the beta release of Oreo. The size of the update is about 1.2 GB and also contains the security patch.

Still, no word from LG, when LG G5 and V20 will receive the Oreo update. After LG V30, V30+, the LG G6 will be the next in the priority list. So after LG G6, either G5 or V20 might receive the Oreo update. More details about the Android Oreo update for LG G5 and V20 will be revealed soon.

In the beginning, Google released the first developer preview of Android O in March and later second and third previews in May and June respectively. The forth preview of Android 8 came out in July and the fifth preview arrived especially for developers in August.

Finally, the official release of Android Oreo took place on August 21st, the day of the Solar Eclipse. Already Nexus 5X, 6P, Pixel and Pixel XL devices got the update and Google launches the Pixel 2 flagship with inbuilt Android Oreo on October 4th. In Android Oreo, Google fundamentally concentrates on improving the user experience and Battery efficiency.

Android Oreo

Android Oreo Features

1. Picture in Picture Mode

The Picture in Picture (PiP) feature of Android Oreo is one of the elegant features. Previously, with Android Nougat the Search Giant introduced the Split screen or Multi-window feature which helps users to multitask easily. Picture in Picture is the further improvement of the split screen feature.

Android oreo picture in picture mode

Picture in Picture mode

By using Picture in Picture mode, users can easily watch YouTube videos while using other apps. The users can also do various tasks on their devices while talking through video call on the corner of the screen. So the PiP mode improves user experience enormously. We hope that Google will improve multitasking further in future updates.

2. App Background Limits

This is one of the features of Android Oreo aimed to reduce the battery drain. With improved Doze Mode, Android Nougat succeeded in reducing battery drain compared to Marshmallow. The app restrictions of Oreo take the battery saving a step further.

Background execution limits restrict the background processes of apps and broadcast services. They also limit requests of location updates by the apps and the location restrictions will apply not only to the apps that target Android 8.0 API but also to the apps that target previous android versions.

3. Faster Boot times

Android Oreo improves the boot time of device and Google boasts that Android 8.0 will minimize the boot time to half compared to its predecessor. The 2x faster boot times are already confirmed by the upgraded Pixel and Nexus 5X users. So Android Oreo may also reduce the boot times in all the devices which will receive the update. Usually the boot time depends on the performance of hardware, but Android Oreo is bringing this benifit without upgrading the hardware.

4. Redesigned Emojis

Google said Bye to the old blob emojis of Android with the introduction of new emojis in Oreo. Google worked out for about 18 months to design the emoji set included in the Android 8.0. The search giant announced details about the revamped Android Emojis at I/O 2017 which took place in May 2017.

The new emojis of Android Oreo look more round and facial expressions also look very clear. The redesign emojis are similar to iOS and Samsung emojis, so that users can easily recognize them irrespective of different platforms. Android Oreo also contains 69 new emojis which are focused on better representation of people, gender and also fun, fantacy. The new emojis coming with Oreo include starstruck, throwing up, fairy, mermaid, giraffe, wizard and so on. These new and redesigned Emojis will come to the devices which receive the Android Oreo update.

5. Adaptive Icons

With Adaptive icons, users can change the shape of the icons and currently there are four shapes are available in Oreo : square, rounded square, squircle and teardrop. Developers also design their app icons in the way that all icons of one app look similar irrespective of the OEM but the shape of the icons may change, according to the OEM.

Android Oreo adaptive icons

Adaptive Icons

So in one OEM device they may appear in square shape and in another OEM device they may appear in rounded square shape, but with the same style. More details about the Adaptive icons feature will be revealed in coming days.

6. Snooze Notifications

Android Oreo brings the option to snooze notifications, a feature Apple iOS got last year. In Oreo, when the user swipes the notification to right, a clock icon will appear. The user can tap on clock icon and select required time interval in 15mins, 30mins, 1 hour and 2 hour options, after which the notification reappears.

Android 8.0 snooze notifications

Snooze Notifications

This feature is useful while dealing with news updates or Email notifications while busy. Users can snooze the required notifications and deal with them later.

7. Notification Dots

This is another improvement brought by Android Oreo regarding to the Notifications. The Notification dots feature is already familiar to Apple iPhone users as iOS brought this many years ago. Now this elegant feature comes to Android with Oreo.

Android Oreo Notification dots

Notification Dots

When a new notification arrives, a dot will appear at corner of the app icon in Android 8.0. So users can easily identify the required notifications and interact with them. Users can tap on the Notification badge to check the notification but unlike iOS, Android Oreo doesn’t tell how many notifications are in pending for a specific app. In iOS, the number of pending notifications also appears on the badge. Probably, Google will bring the Notification counter in the upcoming updates.

8. New Bluetooth codecs

Android Oreo Bluetooth codecs

Bluetooth Codecs in Android Oreo

In Android Oreo, high quality Bluetooth codecs are included which improve the quality of Bluetooth audio. The codecs included in Android 8.0 include Qualcomm’s aptX, aptX HD, Sony’s LDAC and also SBC, AAC. The Eighth major iteration of Android brings the support for Bluetooth 5.0. Google introduced the AAudio feature which is referred to as the high performance and low latency audio.

9. Rescue Party

Rescue party is a feature to revive the device from bootloops and system crashes, according to the documentation in the AOSP source code. The documentation says that the rescue party feature comes into action when the system restarts more than 5 times in just 5 mins or a system app crashes more than 5 times in 30 secs.

The rescue party feature tries in different ways like wiping the cache to get the device back to normal. If the rescue methods are not effective on the issue then it suggests to do a factory reset which is the ultimate solution for boot loop problems. Google own Nexus and Pixel devices got the rescue party feature with Android 8.0 Oreo update, but it is still unclear whether other OEMs include the feature in their updates or not.

10. No Unknown Sources setting

Prior to Android Oreo, the user must check the unknown source option in the Settings menu before trying to install a 3rd party APK. But in Oreo the install from unknown source option has removed. In Oreo, if the user wanted to install any app downloaded from other sources through Chrome or Amazon app store, the External sources permission box appears after the download. The user must check the option Trust apps from this Source, in order to install the downloaded app.

11. Auto Turn-on Wi-Fi

Android Oreo brought this useful feature to refine user experience. By using this feature, the user would be able to connect to high quality Wi-Fi networks by turning on the Wi-Fi automatically. When the user enabled the option in the Settings menu, when the user is near to the saved high-quality network like Home Wi-Fi, the device turns on the Wi-Fi automatically to connect to it.

Android Oreo Auto turn-on Wi-Fi

But unfortunately, some Pixel users have reported that after upgrading to Oreo, even after connecting to Wi-Fi, the mobile network is not switching off. So the data transfer takes place over mobile network and it is annoying limited data plan users. Not only that, it also drains battery quickly because of connecting to both Wi-Fi and Mobile network. Google announced that they have identified the bug and the fix will be sent along with the next security patch update.

12. Persistent Notifications

Persistent Notifications are one of the features of Android Oreo to prevent battery drain and provide fluid user experience. When the user runs an app in the background, a notification appears and doesn’t close away until the app closed. So user can closely observe which apps are running in the background and can terminate the unnecessary background apps by tapping on the notification.

Android Oreo Persistent Notifications and hide

The persistent Notifications of Android Oreo can be a problem to some apps like Facebook Messenger and Twilight which alway run in the background. So the notification stays there constantly and it may annoy the user. Android Oreo Persistent notifications may clutter the workspace sometimes. Unfortunately, there is no option to disable the persistent notifications in the final version of Android Oreo, but there are some apps available in the play store to hide them.

13. Autofill APIs

Remembering passwords and typing in the forms while logging would be a hassle to many Android users. For the Windows powered Desktop PCs and laptops, there are many password manager softwares available. But for Android, password manager apps are very few and they also not very convenient. The user has to open the password manager app and copy the password and paste in the required field of the form.

Android Oreo Autofill

Android Oreo Autofill

Now with Android 8.0, the hassle of passwords has gone. With autofill APIs of Oreo, users can simply select the password directly while filling the login form. Password managing apps like 1Password, Lastpass will automatically fill the password field in the form, if the Autofill APIs are enabled. With AutoFill APIs, security will be improved and filling forms become more easier.

14. Smart Text Selection

This is another exciting feature coming with the Android Oreo update. Smart Text Selection is an AI integrated feature of Android 8.0 with this feature, when user highlight a piece of text, options relevant to the text will be displayed. So when a phone number is highlighted, an option to call, along with Copy and Paste options.

Android Oreo Smart Text Selection

When an address is selected on Android Oreo, the user can directly navigate to that address by tapping on the Maps option displayed to open Navigation. So with the smart integration of AI in Android Oreo, users can make phone calls, navigate addresses, open URLs instantly without any hassle. The Smart Text selection feature of Android 8 might be further improved in future updates.

Android Oreo for LG G5 Release Dates

Currently, most LG G5 devices are still running on Android 7.0 Nougat and there is no rollout of Android 7.1. Both the carrier and unlocked G5 devices in the US received the Nougat update in H1 of 2017. So, this time LG might start the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for LG G5 devices in Q1 of 2018. The unlocked G5 devices in the US may get this update in Q2 of 2018. The official rollout schedule is yet to be announced.

Android Oreo for LG V20 Release Dates

LG V20 flagship arrived with the pre-loaded Android 7.0 Nougat but still there is no sight of Android 7.1. So it seems that LG bumped the Android 7.1 update to Oreo. The predecessor of LG V20 got the Nougat update in South Korea in May and in the US (T-Mobile) in July. So it looks like LG V series is particularly slow with the Android updates. The South Korean tech giant hasn’t announced any Oreo upgrade plans for V20 but we can make a very educated guess based on the previous rollouts. LG V20 might get the Android 8.0 update in Q2, 2018 in some regions only and in the remaining regions, the rollout may begin in H2, 2018. The official rollout dates of Android Oreo for LG V20 will be revealed in coming days.

We will update this post soon with more details about the Android Oreo update for LG G5 and V20.

This feature can be enabled by going into the Moves menu in Settings. The Fingerprint gesture feature might be refined in future Android updates.

3. New live wallpaper Setting

Google rolled out stock live wallpapers with the Android 7.0 Nougat update. But previously in Nougat, user had to apply the same live wallpaper for both home screen and lock screen. In Android 7.1.2, this live wallpaper setting has refined.

So in Android 7.1.2, users can set live wallpaper for both lock and home screens or only home screen. So users can apply live wallpaper for home screen and static wallpaper for the lock screen. This setting can be applied for stock live wallpapers and third party live wallpapers downloaded from playstore. This also conserves battery.

Battery usage alerts option will appear along with Battery optimization and Help & Feedback options in the top right overflow menu of the Battery section.

android 7.1.2 battery usage alerts

The Battery usage alerts feature lists the apps which drain excess power than usual. This list probably is empty immediately after installing the update. This app list will reset after fully charging the battery. So users can easily identify the battery hungry apps and remove them or reduce usage. Google may improve the feature further in future updates.

Android 7.1.2 Nougat Release Date for HTC 10

HTC 10 came with inbuilt Android 6.0 Marshmallow last year. In the US, HTC 10 is updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in December 2016.

Earlier, Sprint HTC 10 devices got the Android 7.0 update in February. Thus, Sprint may rollout the Android 8.0 Oreo update to its HTC 10 devices in January 2018.

Australia HTC 10 Android Oreo Rollout

There is still no official schedule from HTC Australia about the rollout of Oreo to HTC 10. However, we can guess intelligently by looking at the previous rollouts of HTC Australia. Back in February, HTC started the rollout of Android Nougat for Vodafone, Optus and unlocked HTC 10 devices. But Telstra HTC 10 devices received the Nougat update in July. So this time, HTC Australia may begin the rollout of Android Oreo for HTC 10 in December or January. Both Vodafone and Optus may release the update earlier than Telstra. The confirmed rollout dates will be revealed soon.

We will update this post soon with the confirmed rollout dates of Android 8.0 Oreo for HTC 10.

Android Oreo Features

1. Picture in Picture Mode

The Picture in Picture (PiP) feature of Android Oreo is one of the elegant features. Previously, with Android Nougat the Search Giant introduced the Split screen or Multi-window feature which helps users to multitask easily. Picture in Picture is the further improvement of the split screen feature.

Picture in Picture mode

By using Picture in Picture mode, users can easily watch YouTube videos while using other apps. The users can also do various tasks on their devices while talking through video call on the corner of the screen. So the PiP mode improves user experience enormously. We hope that Google will improve multitasking further in future updates.

2. App Background Limits

This is one of the features of Android Oreo aimed to reduce the battery drain. With improved Doze Mode, Android Nougat succeeded in reducing battery drain compared to Marshmallow. The app restrictions of Oreo take the battery saving a step further.

Background execution limits restrict the background processes of apps and broadcast services. They also limit requests of location updates by the apps and the location restrictions will apply not only to the apps that target Android 8.0 API but also to the apps that target previous android versions.

3. Faster Boot times

Android Oreo improves the boot time of device and Google boasts that Android 8.0 will minimize the boot time to half compared to its predecessor. The 2x faster boot times are already confirmed by the upgraded Pixel and Nexus 5X users. So Android Oreo may also reduce the boot times in all the devices which will receive the update. Usually the boot time depends on the performance of hardware, but Android Oreo is bringing this benifit without upgrading the hardware.

4. Redesigned Emojis

Google said Bye to the old blob emojis of Android with the introduction of new emojis in Oreo. Google worked out for about 18 months to design the emoji set included in the Android 8.0. The search giant announced details about the revamped Android Emojis at I/O 2017 which took place in May 2017.

The new emojis of Android Oreo look more round and facial expressions also look very clear. The redesign emojis are similar to iOS and Samsung emojis, so that users can easily recognize them irrespective of different platforms. Android Oreo also contains 69 new emojis which are focused on better representation of people, gender and also fun, fantacy. The new emojis coming with Oreo include starstruck, throwing up, fairy, mermaid, giraffe, wizard and so on. These new and redesigned Emojis will come to the devices which receive the Android Oreo update.

5. Adaptive Icons

With Adaptive icons, users can change the shape of the icons and currently there are four shapes are available in Oreo : square, rounded square, squircle and teardrop. Developers also design their app icons in the way that all icons of one app look similar irrespective of the OEM but the shape of the icons may change, according to the OEM.

So in one OEM device they may appear in square shape and in another OEM device they may appear in rounded square shape, but with the same style. More details about the Adaptive icons feature will be revealed in coming days.

6. Snooze Notifications

Android Oreo brings the option to snooze notifications, a feature Apple iOS got last year. In Oreo, when the user swipes the notification to right, a clock icon will appear. The user can tap on clock icon and select required time interval in 15mins, 30mins, 1 hour and 2 hour options, after which the notification reappears.

Android 8.0 snooze notifications

Snooze Notifications

This feature is useful while dealing with news updates or Email notifications while busy. Users can snooze the required notifications and deal with them later.

7. Notification Dots

This is another improvement brought by Android Oreo regarding to the Notifications. The Notification dots feature is already familiar to Apple iPhone users as iOS brought this many years ago. Now this elegant feature comes to Android with Oreo.

Notification Dots

When a new notification arrives, a dot will appear at corner of the app icon in Android 8.0. So users can easily identify the required notifications and interact with them. Users can tap on the Notification badge to check the notification but unlike iOS, Android Oreo doesn’t tell how many notifications are in pending for a specific app. In iOS, the number of pending notifications also appears on the badge. Probably, Google will bring the Notification counter in the upcoming updates.

8. New Bluetooth codecs

Android Oreo Bluetooth codecs

Bluetooth Codecs in Android Oreo

In Android Oreo, high quality Bluetooth codecs are included which improve the quality of Bluetooth audio. The codecs included in Android 8.0 include Qualcomm’s aptX, aptX HD, Sony’s LDAC and also SBC, AAC. The Eighth major iteration of Android brings the support for Bluetooth 5.0. Google introduced the AAudio feature which is referred to as the high performance and low latency audio.

9. Rescue Party

Rescue party is a feature to revive the device from bootloops and system crashes, according to the documentation in the AOSP source code. The documentation says that the rescue party feature comes into action when the system restarts more than 5 times in just 5 mins or a system app crashes more than 5 times in 30 secs.

The rescue party feature tries in different ways like wiping the cache to get the device back to normal. If the rescue methods are not effective on the issue then it suggests to do a factory reset which is the ultimate solution for boot loop problems. Google own Nexus and Pixel devices got the rescue party feature with Android 8.0 Oreo update, but it is still unclear whether other OEMs include the feature in their updates or not.

10. No Unknown Sources setting

Prior to Android Oreo, the user must check the unknown source option in the Settings menu before trying to install a 3rd party APK. But in Oreo the install from unknown source option has removed. In Oreo, if the user wanted to install any app downloaded from other sources through Chrome or Amazon app store, the External sources permission box appears after the download. The user must check the option Trust apps from this Source, in order to install the downloaded app.

11. Auto Turn-on Wi-Fi

Android Oreo brought this useful feature to refine user experience. By using this feature, the user would be able to connect to high quality Wi-Fi networks by turning on the Wi-Fi automatically. When the user enabled the option in the Settings menu, when the user is near to the saved high-quality network like Home Wi-Fi, the device turns on the Wi-Fi automatically to connect to it.

Android Oreo Auto turn-on Wi-Fi

But unfortunately, some Pixel users have reported that after upgrading to Oreo, even after connecting to Wi-Fi, the mobile network is not switching off. So the data transfer takes place over mobile network and it is annoying limited data plan users. Not only that, it also drains battery quickly because of connecting to both Wi-Fi and Mobile network. Google announced that they have identified the bug and the fix will be sent along with the next security patch update.

12. Persistent Notifications

Persistent Notifications are one of the features of Android Oreo to prevent battery drain and provide fluid user experience. When the user runs an app in the background, a notification appears and doesn’t close away until the app closed. So user can closely observe which apps are running in the background and can terminate the unnecessary background apps by tapping on the notification.

Android Oreo Persistent Notifications and hide

The persistent Notifications of Android Oreo can be a problem to some apps like Facebook Messenger and Twilight which alway run in the background. So the notification stays there constantly and it may annoy the user. Android Oreo Persistent notifications may clutter the workspace sometimes. Unfortunately, there is no option to disable the persistent notifications in the final version of Android Oreo, but there are some apps available in the play store to hide them.

13. Autofill APIs

Remembering passwords and typing in the forms while logging would be a hassle to many Android users. For the Windows powered Desktop PCs and laptops, there are many password manager softwares available. But for Android, password manager apps are very few and they also not very convenient. The user has to open the password manager app and copy the password and paste in the required field of the form.

Android Oreo Autofill

Android Oreo Autofill

Now with Android 8.0, the hassle of passwords has gone. With autofill APIs of Oreo, users can simply select the password directly while filling the login form. Password managing apps like 1Password, Lastpass will automatically fill the password field in the form, if the Autofill APIs are enabled. With AutoFill APIs, security will be improved and filling forms become more easier.

14. Smart Text Selection

This is another exciting feature coming with the Android Oreo update. Smart Text Selection is an AI integrated feature of Android 8.0 with this feature, when user highlight a piece of text, options relevant to the text will be displayed. So when a phone number is highlighted, an option to call, along with Copy and Paste options.

Android Oreo Smart Text Selection

When an address is selected on Android Oreo, the user can directly navigate to that address by tapping on the Maps option displayed to open Navigation. So with the smart integration of AI in Android Oreo, users can make phone calls, navigate addresses, open URLs instantly without any hassle. The Smart Text selection feature of Android 8 might be further improved in future updates.

Android Oreo for HTC U11 Release Dates

After the release of Android Oreo, HTC USA tweeted that HTC U11 will receive the Android Oreo update before the end of this year. So the unlocked HTC U11 devices may receive the Oreo update in November 2017 and Sprint may begin the rollout in Q1 of 2018. The confirmed rollout dates of Android 8.0 for HTC U11 will be revealed soon.

Android Oreo for HTC 10 Release Dates

Currently HTC 10 owners are waiting for the Android 7.1 update and some other users got Android 7.1.2 through custom roms. Recently, HTC USA confirmed that HTC 10 will be upgraded to Android Oreo but no specific time has given. So we can make a very intelligent guess by looking at the previous rollouts for HTC 10.

The unlocked HTC 10 devices received the Android 7.0 Nougat update in November 2017. The major US carriers rolled out the update for HTC 10 in Q1 of 2017. So the Oreo rollout for the unlocked HTC 10 devices may begin in December 2017. Carrier locked HTC 10 devices may receive the Android 8.0 update in Q1 2018. The official rollout dates of Oreo for HTC 10 will be revealed soon.

We will update this post soon with more details about the Android Oreo update for HTC U11 and HTC 10 flagships.

This feature is present in Pixel and Pixel XL devices inbuilt. In this feature, users can check notifications by just swiping down on the fingerprint sensor. Google much improved this feature in the previews and the final build of Android 7.1.2. So after updating to Android 7.1.2, this Fingerprint gesture feature is working faster and reliable in Pixel devices.

This feature can be enabled by going into the Moves menu in Settings. The Fingerprint gesture feature might be refined in future Android updates.

3. New live wallpaper Setting

Google rolled out stock live wallpapers with the Android 7.0 Nougat update. But previously in Nougat, user had to apply the same live wallpaper for both home screen and lock screen. In Android 7.1.2, this live wallpaper setting has refined.

So in Android 7.1.2, users can set live wallpaper for both lock and home screens or only home screen. So users can apply live wallpaper for home screen and static wallpaper for the lock screen. This setting can be applied for stock live wallpapers and third party live wallpapers downloaded from playstore. This also conserves battery.
